Challenge one

Hey everyone! Welcome to Challenge one! :) 
It needs to be sent in to Dott & Chatty by Wednesday July 14, 2010
Be sure to read the rules if you haven't already!

For this challenge, you will be taking this paragraph and adding to it to make it a short story. You will all be assigned a genre. You have to use the genre that you're assigned to to write your story.
Here are your genres:

Zebra:Science fiction
Team Gale:Drama
Misery Business: Crime

And here's the paragraph you'll all use as a starting point :)

I wiped the beads of sweat off of my forehead and looked up at the sky. It must have been at least a hundred degrees outside. It wasn't usually this hot.
I sighed and started walking. My bags felt like they were a thousand pounds heavier than they were five minutes ago. The streets were barren, and everyone was either inside their homes sitting in front of their air conditioners, or at the pool. But no, I had to walk home from work because my car was at the repair shop. Joy.
I was almost home when I walked past an alley. When I peered inside it, I could have sworn I saw a shadowy figure standing at the back of it, watching me. I heard something that sounded like a gun being loaded as it turned its gaze away from me and to something it was holding. I began fast-walking towards my house.

Good luck, everyone!
